How the product was developed
In 2012, Panasonic started developing vacuum insulated glass (VIG) using plasma display panel (PDP) manufacturing technology. Although we are a relatively new VIG manufacturer, we possess technology that enables us to manufacture several tens of millions of vacuum panel sheets in our PDP production process. This highly reliable vacuum sealing technology has been applied to VIG manufacturing.
The float vacuum insulated glass has a nominal thickness of 6.1 mm, and was added to the product lineup as a high transparency model with high interior visibility (thermal transmittance: 0.9 W/(m2•K)) and as a high insulation model with high heat insulation performance (thermal transmittance: 0.7 W/(m2•K)). The tempered vacuum insulated glass has a nominal thickness of 8.1 mm, and its product lineup is limited to high transparency models (thermal transmittance: 0.58 W/(m2•K)).
